Tarte Easy Glowing Deluxe Cheek Set Review & Swatches

Tarte Easy Glowing Deluxe Cheek Set8

The Tarte Easy Glowing Deluxe Cheek Set is a new, limited edition Holiday 2015 Gift Set that launched at Sephora for $10 recently which includes a Tarte Cheek Stain in Dazzle and an Amazonian Blush in Enthused (or you might want to dub this one a highlighter).

Tarte does these sets every now and again and I always like to grab them up! The last set was called How Sweet It Is and launched at Ulta for Summer 2015. I LOVED the blush shade in that set!

The Tarte Easy Glowing Deluxe Cheek Set is sold out online but I got mine recently at Sephora as they have a few laying in the check out bin as you wait in line so check at your local store if you want to pick one up!

It’s a cute set but now nearly as nice as the Sweet It Is Set in my opinion as I liked the blush a lot more in that set. This includes deluxe sizes so the blush is 0.05 oz and and the blush stick is 0.17 oz so for ten bucks it’s a nice little budget-y pick up.

I wouldn’t call Enthused a Blush. This is a beige champagne highlighting shade that adds a pretty ouch of golden champagne sheen to cheeks and fast. Sometimes Tarte’s smaller deluxe brushes are not as great as their larger ones but I had no issues with this formula. It’s soft, silky, and applies and blends out very easily. I used it as an eyeshadow too and it works beautifully to create and ethereal light on my lids!

Dazed is the true blush shade in this gift set! It’s a dusky brown based peach that adds a warm glow-y peach to my cheeks. Unfortunately it fades pretty fast! I seem to have the hardest time getting Tarte’s Cheek Stain to stick around on my skin.

All in all it’s quite a nice little set. I love how I could use the blush as a highlighter or an eyeshadow!

If you find it in store I do think it is worth the purchase.

Anyone own it?

Do share your thoughts on the set!

I purchased this item.

    The highlighter looks really pretty! But I’m staying away from Tarte Cheek “Stains”. I got Blushing Bride because everyone raves about that color, and it is pretty, but it fades within minutes of application. It’s like my cheeks are just eating the color 🙁

    So pretty & I want it so bad. I go to Sephora at least once a week and I don’t remember seeing it in the store. I called some stores around me and none of them have it. Maybe it’s for Black Friday. Crossing my fingers.

      I just saw on the Sephora app (which is doing a preview of black Friday) and this is on there! So it will be available on the website for black Friday. I was trying to find a swatch on it after seeing it would be offered, and it lead me here! I actually really like the cheek stains.

    It looks lovely, but I think it is too pink for me. But it sounds as if there are issues with its longevity….

  • Rachel R.

    I like the highlighter. I do OK with the cheek stains, but they’re not my favorite.

    BTW, I don’t think I’ve said, but I really like the new site layout. It’s really clean looking, yet still feminine and pretty.

    I love this set! I’ve been using it almost every day since I first got it.

    I must have this set! But I can’t find it at my local Sephora store and it sold out online both times they were available. Where do you live? Any chance you could buy one for me and I’ll send you payment plush shipping??
